Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also do holistic well-being massage and body awareness, particularly for survivors of abuse.

Further information

I have been practicing as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 1994 and have a lot of experience with many different client groups.

Personal development is very important to me. I enjoy and believe it is important to keep up to date with current changes and new awareness in science in the Therapy field, including neuroscience, the impact of trauma on the body and mind, shamanic and trans-personal work as well as the impact of the environment on individuals.

I believe that we all have the potential within us to grow and thrive. It is an ongoing process and through the medium of a Therapeutic relationship, where we are heard and witnessed with compassion, we can then heal, grow and discover new vitality and aspiration.
